Cleveland Cavaliers are hoping to offload Kevin Love’s contract off their salary cap. For now, no NBA team expressed interest in acquiring the veteran forward via trade.
Former Cavs’ assistant coach James Posey believes that contending teams should look into acquiring Love because of what he can bring to the table.

“He knows what it takes to win, and also just now with him being the older statesman on the team, just showing his leadership value,” Posey said on a recent episode of SiriusXM NBA Radio. “You look at teams that could possibly use his talents. He’s a great shooter. He’s spacing the floor. I just think for an opportunity for him to win another championship, I think teams should look into getting Kevin Love.”
For his career, Love has averages of 18.0 points, 11.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game on 44.2 percent shooting from the field and 37.0 percent shooting from deep. He has two years remaining in his current contract, worth nearly $60M.
